VP8 Codec ported to Dreamcast by Multimedia Mike.

Multimedia Mike has ported the "youtube codec" VP8 over to the Dreamcast!.

"So, can the Dreamcast decode VP8 video in realtime? Sure! Well, I really need to qualify. In the test depicted in the picture, it seems to be realtime (though I wasn’t enforcing proper frame timings, just decoding and displaying as quickly as possible)."

Maybe somebody can implement that into one of the browsers so we can watch youtube on our Dreamcasts ^_-.
